The article discusses the aesthetics of dismemberment in Japanese robotics, which involves the excision and reconstitution of initially organic wholes into artificial and idealized functional parts. This aesthetic is related to the internal logic of the robot's dissociated elements and Japanese artistic practice, which values fragmentariness. It also explores the connection between the aesthetics of dismemberment in robotics and the Japanese language's use of katakana, a script that embodies the concept of fragmentariness.
